Sad news about closure of HMV in Middlesbrough. Had a very enjoyable stint working there one Christmas many years ago with some top people
Great, so my local HMV (and the store i used to work at) is closing down =( My thoughts go with the staff @hmvmansfield
Absolutely gutted to hear HMV Stockport is closing down. Hope my friends there soon find employment elsewhere. The end of an era :(
